How did you first become interested in professional sports?
When I was 12 years old, I had a friend that was a great player and we started playing pickup basketball.
My dad would tell us that he was going to go into the NBA, and I think that’s when I really knew that I wanted to be a sports fan.
That’s how it started.
I was in high school when the first professional basketball team, the Sacramento Kings, were actually formed.
I had my dad play the game, and that’s how we started seeing professional basketball in California in the mid-1990s.
I loved the games, and the stories, and they were amazing.
I would go to games with my dad, and he would talk about his favorite players, and you could see it was a lifelong love.
It was the first time that I really became a part of the game.
I was a kid that was always watching the game and was intrigued.
How has your interest in sports evolved since you first started watching?
I think when I first became a fan, I was just watching the games.
I remember going to a game and thinking that I didn’t really know how to interact with the other team.
That was when I started to really see the value in watching the video game.
That is what started me on this journey, but now, I don’t really watch games anymore.
I just play them.
How long have you been involved in sports?
I have been an avid sports fan since I was 11 years old.
I have a lot of brothers that played in the league.
My favorite team was the Sacramento Warriors, which is the team that I grew up cheering for, and so my passion was always there.
I started watching them in high-school, but it wasn’t until I was in college that I realized I had this passion for the game of football.
I think I’m a huge fan of the Patriots, so when I saw the Patriots were doing a commercial, I thought, That is awesome.
Then I realized that the Patriots had an entire playbook that they would take a guy and put him in a game.
There was this one player that I liked, and then I watched that game, I really fell in love with the Patriots.
I wanted that player on my team, and it’s been the same since.
How many times a week do you watch a game?
There’s always something going on in the world of professional sports.
When I’m at home with my family, I watch the games a lot.
When we’re at work, I do some homework and get ready for work, and if I get time, I’ll do a little bit of homework as well.
What’s your favorite NFL team?
The Seahawks are one of my favorites.
I love the Super Bowl.
What was your favorite player growing up?
My favorite player is probably my father.
I watched him play for the Sacramento Rams, and his biggest role was that of the wide receiver.
He was the guy who had the most catches.
He played every position.
I really wanted to play for him and see how he handled the pressure of being a wide receiver, and how much he loved it.
What was your first job in the NFL?
I started as a player scout at the NFLPA.
I saw guys getting cut because of their performance on the field, and my dad’s response was, “No, no, no.
We’re going to find you a job in football.”
I was like, Well, this is going to be my career, and this is where I’m going to have to do something to pay the bills.
So, I spent a lot more time on the sidelines, and when I was 17 years old I was getting paid $200 a game, which was amazing.
I thought I was going crazy, and as a young adult, I felt like, Oh, my God.
How did you handle that?
When my dad took me to the Giants camp in 2001, we went into the locker room and got together and started doing that thing.
I think the first thing I learned from watching my dad was how important he was to this team.
I always loved to watch him play, and one of the things that
